VIDEO: Patrice Evra dances in celebration of Juventus signing Higuaín

Lays down table tennis bat to throw some celebratory shapes with his kids.


Welcome to Juventus GONZALO HIGUAIN !!! hahahahahahahaha i love this game !!!

Watch the moment Patrice Evra dances to celebrate news of Juventus signing Gonzalo Higuaín for £75.3m from Napoli.

The former Manchester United left-back is still going strong at Juve, and as this video shows he remains quite the character.

Pretending at first not to believe the news, he then interrupts his table tennis match to break out into a ‘spontaneous’ dance with his kids.

With the music suddenly changing tempo in the background, it’s hard to think that it wasn’t all staged – in which case, full marks for showmanship.

Argentina striker Higuaín scored 91 goals in 146 appearances for Napoli, making them as close to a one-man team as they’ve been since Diego Maradona’s heyday.

He’s also scored 30 times in 63 games for his country, although he missed a penalty in the shoot-out of their recent Copa América final defeat to Chile.

Mind you, so did Lionel Messi so he’s in good company.

Speaking of company, France defender Evra also tasted defeat in the final of a major tournament this summer, losing to Portugal at Euro 2016.

So perhaps once Evra dances himself into a standstill, he can sit down with Higuaín for a spot of mutual consolation.
